• If you have to attend an important meeting early next morning, take eye mask and earplugs with you so that you take a complete rest and have a comfortable sleep. If you have a sound sleep, next day you will feel fresh and attend the meeting successfully. If you feel tired and sleepy, it will give a wrong impression on the other party.
• If you are going on a long business trip, get up in time. Do not think that there is no work and you have to get ready only. Get up in time and do the workouts like yoga and pranayam. Take full benefit of the opportunity. Sometimes in your daily routine, you do not get enough time for yoga and exercise. Use this time for that. Do not forget to set alarm in your mobile or small clock, to avoid any problem in getting up.
• It is better to take dark colour clothes with you so that they do not look dirty. Try to take such clothes with you that do not develop wrinkles, so that there is no tension of ironing of the cloths. Wear business suit during the meeting. Avoid taking huge quantity of clothes to avoid the trouble of managing them.
• With business dress, one should wear business shoes. But do not forget to keep sleepers also with you. In the hotel you will feel comfortable in chapals or sleepers only. Always take comfortable shoes with you on the business trips. You can use these shoes for jogging too.
• After the meeting is over, before returning, do some shopping too. Buy some memento as remembrance of that trip. If possible, purchase some gifts for your near and dear ones.
• While going on a business trip, inform your family about your programme, where you are going and for how many days. If you have to extend your tour programme, inform your family about it immediately.
